Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho ‘ready to let Dele Alli go’ for PSG
Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho is ready to give the green light to Dele Alli’s loan transfer to Paris Saint-Germain before the January transfer window closes, although president Daniel Levy has yet to be convinced to sanction this decision.
The England midfielder has fallen out of favor at Spurs this season as he started life under Mourinho as a key part of his starting XI.
Alli has only made four Premier League appearances this season – three of which have come from the bench – with the majority of his Europa League and National Cup appearances.
Last year’s Champions League finalists PSG were rumored to have been keeping tabs on the 24-year-old for some time, with speculation escalating following the former’s recent appointment. Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Mourinho has decided to take the midfielder away from talks of a north London move in recent weeks – insisting he had played his way into his plans – however, the Daily Mail reports that the Tottenham boss is now ready to authorize the 24- a year to go to Parc des Princes on loan.
The only remaining stumbling block in the deal remains Daniel Levy’s approval.
The Spurs president has appeared reluctant to sanction the midfielder’s departure, and the ankle injury suffered by Harry Kane in the club’s recent loss to Liverpool could seriously affect Alli’s hopes to walk away.
Kane is no stranger to ankle problems, although the blow he suffered at Anfield is not considered as bad as some of his previous injuries.
Nevertheless, the England captain is still on the verge of being sidelined for at least a handful of matches, and coupled with Giovani Lo Celso’s injury, Levy could still block Alli’s departure from the club.
